Par­ton gets kick out of Hol­ly­wood

The Times-Tribune - - Briefly -

WEST HOL­LY­WOOD, Calif. — Dolly Par­ton says she’s ex­cited to be in the Hol­ly­wood mix on Emmy Awards week­end.

The 71-year-old en­ter­tainer was among the stars mak­ing the preshow party rounds Fri­day with a stop at Va­ri­ety and Women in Film’s gath­er­ing at Gra­cias Madre restau­rant in West Hol­ly­wood, Cal­i­for­nia.

“All the par­ties, see­ing all the stars ... I still get a kick out of it,” Par­ton said. “I’m a coun­try girl.”

Wear­ing a skin-tight black rhinestone-stud­ded dress, Par­ton said she’s also ex­cited about her gown and wig for to­day’s show. She’s up for an Emmy in the TV movie cat­e­gory for “Dolly Par­ton’s Christ­mas of Many Col­ors: Cir­cle of Love.”

Par­ton’s week­end was not all about fancy par­ties, though. She said she spent some time in the kitchen ear­lier Fri­day.

“Well, I made some sausage and bis­cuits for my trip home on the bus af­ter the shows are over. And I made some chicken and dumplings, a few lit­tle gro­ceries that I put to­gether,” she said. “See, I travel in my tour bus and I al­ways cook my own food. So that was not very glam­orous, but it was good.”
